re: Huh. I always thought it was "MacBooks Pro", like "Fathers-in-law".
 

"Macbook Pro" is the whole product name whereas "in-law" is effectively an adjective on father. But I don't think grammar is quite the point. :)

 

But people shorten it to "MacBook", and "Pro" is short for "professional". So "MacBook Pros" logically expands to MacBook Professionals (which makes me think of the Genius Bar). Anyway, I seem to be in the minority.
